Hello! - welcome to my blog....I am very lucky to have a job I love,

meeting new people every day, and traveling around the country

with my trusty camera (well actually more than just a camera!)

and here are some of my stories and the shoots I have done......

Great Yorkshire Show favorites

July 05, 2023  •  Leave a Comment

With the Great Yorkshire Show just around the corner I thought I would share a few favourites I shot over the last few years for the Yorkshire Agricultural Society as one of their show photographers.

I first attended back in the early 1990's as a young fresh faced photographer at the Hull Daily Mail.

Since being freelance from 2008 onwards I have been there every year working for Welcome to Yorkshire and then the YAS.

 

Great event and always love working there!

Our Daisy

February 18, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Can I introduce Daisy our new addition to our photography business. She is a 1979 vintage caravan decked out in 'Cath Kidston' style furnishings and jammed full of vintage decorations and props. And of course lets not forget her retro state of the art photo booth and onboard printer!

She's a local lass, originating in Grimsby from the Cotswold Coachcraft Caravan factory.

I saw her for sale online and thought it would be fun to have her alongside my existing photography business, bringing fun and joy to weddings, celebrations and corporate events.

Available to hire and she is already proving very popular with bookings coming in thick and fast!

In the short time we have had her we have already had the pleasure of bringing her along to weddings and a great corporate weekend at the Emmerdale village for ITV and McCain.

Am also getting interest in her for corporate promotion work and film and tv work too.
